The tiny island of Hudhuranfushi in the Maldives lives up to its name, which translates to
'Island of White Gold'
in the local language. An idyllic tropical haven
with picturesque palm trees, powder-soft, white sand beaches and clear, warm turquoise waters, Hudhuranfushi never fails to enchant visitors.
The island is particularly noted for its water sports
, with a multitude of exciting options available, from catamarans to water skiing, windsurfing and canoeing and of course diving to explore the amazing marine life.
If you can drag yourself away from your sunlounger, local excursions
include visits to museums and mosques in the nearby capital island of Male, seaplane tours and island hopping.
